Thanks SO MUCH for all your support, and we'll see you in-game!
I kinda think this would be a cool idea for some rare or unique items. You could probably add some visual effects to the weapons too, like energy flares to some of the beams, that way you could know what people are trying to hit you with.
Dying to a Romulan weapon has a 100 % higher proc to adding insult to injury for a Klingon.
Does the weapon transmit a message seconds before the warp core goes off?
" Your ridges are flat and lifeless" BOOOOM!!!!!:p
Though, I too would like to see some level of racial "specialties" in the different factional weapon technologies.
As it is right now a disruptor is a disruptor is a disruptor regardless who is using it.
Possibly a faction needs a bonus towards using technologies designed by their own faction?
I don't think it makes much sense - the weapons are are already linked to specific races, so it seems redundant. Also, this would create new balance considerations.
What I would argue for is, should it ever come to the addition of additionl factions, that the respective races should get a skill tree that is adjusted for their favored weapon choice - e.g. Romulans have Plasma Torpedoes as Tier 3 skill, and the Dominion has Polarons as their Tier 3 skill.
